The round 24 LED lights?

They work very well. I put two of them in my Otter Lodge and lights up the area nice.

Don't know about battery life, but I imagine they should go quite a while. Should be pretty easy to do the math and figure it out. They use 4 AA's

I think the claim is 80hrs. I would guess anywhere from 50-60hrs

I got one at F Farm last year and put rechargeable batteries in it. after a few minutes the bulbs started exploding. I exchanged it for another one and the same thing happened. I think as long as you don't use rechargeable batteries in it they're good. I got a 48 led light from Northern and it works fine on the rechargeable batteries.

I've got two of them, and like Dtro said, they work very well. They are nice because they are very lightweight, cheap and very portable.

Saw these lights at FF a couple weeks ago too. Ran about 10 bucks for one set of lights. I'm gonna pick up two of them soon.

I have the UFO light and the 12 volt LED Robe Light.

Hands down the rope light is better light. Zip tie to the pipe in your portable or mount in your preminant house for late night fishing or night light. I have and extra VEX battery that i use for the rope lights. This is better than buying AA batteries all the time. I tore my UFO ligtht apart to try and wire for a VEX battery but have not fiqured it out yet.

Good luck

These lights work well for the money. You can get alot of run time out of them and I love how portable they are. I did have one [PoorWordUsage] out on me right away, so I assume that was a defective one, but the other one I have has worked fine without an issue. I also picked up one of the 42 light units from Northern Tool a few weeks ago, and though I haven't used it on the ice yet, I have in the garage as a work light, and have been real happy with it.

I don't know where you're located, but by me, at the Oakdale store there on the end of an aisle in the fishing section. On sale for $7, i think.

I have had the LEDs explode on me when I was using regular batteries. I currently have 2 of them and when they break I am done with them. The other day one of the rings of lights were dimmer than the other, not built with quality or probly not designed for the cold. They give off good light I will give them that.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
